we’re reading about a bear who lost his hat.

Last week we started a new storytelling initiative which the kids loved, so this week we found another classic book, translated it into Arabic and read it to them. this time we chose, ‘I want my hat back’, by Jon Klassen. It was a humorous and repetitive story, which we paired with a cardboard cut-out of the main character and some face painted animal noses, so that everyone could have a turn at pretending to be the bear. As soon as the story was finished, the kids all started repeating the main question of the book, “have you seen my hat?”, and roleplaying with each other, which just goes to show the positive effects storytelling has for their listening and communication skills. Not to mention the amount of fun monica and leane are having reading them.

If you have any favourite books, please share them with us so we can translate them and read them to our community over the following weeks.
